It's WINTER!! Brrrrr!!

It's WINTER!! Brrrrr!!

Did an 8K club run this morning at a seaside place called Tallebudgera. Ran around the base ,of the "mountain"/headland , and along the beachfront to the next Surf Lifesaving Club abd back. It was around 10C at 7AM and everybody was freezing - by the time we got back and had some coffee/breakfast it was back up to 20C and some went in for a swim and play around with a blow -up paddle board. Too cold for me !! - but It is a nice 25C this afternoon - typical SE Qld winter weather really! :)

Over 10 degrees no jacket and short sleeves, under 10 degrees with a jacket that comes off after 5 mins. Only REALLY need a jacket when it's under 0C. Never run with gloves, scarf or hat (unless it's a peaked cap to keep the rain off my glasses). But obviously the temperatures are different in Oz!

Spring here means a few days of pleasant temperatures followed by a ridiculously hot day or so followed by rain and "cold" temperatures. Yesterday was a "cold" day so I was in long trousers, t-shirt and thin running jacket when it was 19 degrees at 8 in the morning. I have turned into a wuss. But I did ditch the jacket after 5 minutes of running :)

Be sure and wrap up warm, Bazza. Lots of layers is the key.

Ach bazza, when you've experienced -15 and your teeth hurt and itcfreezes inside your nose, then you'll have known true happiness - the happiness of getting back indoors.

Gosh Bazza, it's a good thing you were wearing gloves - frostbite is no joke!
